Litemind Cedar Grove - Home 101 Important Questions To Ask Yourself by Celes on Oct 30, 2010 | ShareThis Email This Post “The key to wisdom is knowing all the right questions.” – John Simone What questions do you ask yourself every day? Believe it or not, the kind of questions you ask determine the kind of life you lead. Some people like to ask questions like “Why am I so unlucky?” If you’re someone who normally doesn’t self-reflect, you might be stumped by questions. Today, I believe questions are a key to self-awareness and personal growth. It doesn’t matter if you get stumped in the beginning, or if you don’t know the answers to the questions at first. I’ve come up with a set of important questions for your self-reflection. Remember, there is no one final answer. Here they are: Who are you?

The 5As of Actualization First we make our habits, then our habits make us. – Charles C. Noble One of the most effective ways to actualize your own potential and goals is to form habits and routines that make the actualization (almost) automatic. We see reflections of this observation in the works of Aristotle and Lao Tzu from millennia ago on through the works of contemporary thinkers such as Stephen Covey and the Dalai Lama. At a certain point, habits allow you to reach the optimal state of achieving without trying to achieve. The lead quote sums up things nicely, though, in that habit-building can be an active process, too. Since we can choose, do, track, and evaluate the habits and routines that help us actualize ourselves and our goals, there’s a process with discrete but related steps.

ChangeCycle.com The Change Cycle™ Model Change has always been a necessary aspect of life and work, and our world is changing more rapidly than ever. It is likely that you will have to cope with a variety of changes in the near future. People react, respond and adjust to change in a sequence of six predictable stages. Stage 1 – Loss to Safety In Stage 1 you admit to yourself that regardless of whether or not you perceive the change to be good or 'bad" there will be a sense of loss of what "was." Stage 2 – Doubt to Reality In this stage, you doubt the facts, doubt your doubts and struggle to find information about the change that you believe is valid. Stage 3 – Discomfort to Motivation You will recognize Stage 3 by the discomfort it brings. The Danger Zone The Danger Zone represents the pivotal place where you make the choice either to move on to Stage 4 and discover the possibilities the change has presented or to choose fear and return to Stage 1.
What motivates us? @Blueluck: Very true - I've seen other countries where people leave their family in another country to go find work, and then to manual labor for extremely cheap just to be able to send it all home to their family. I guess that could be interpreted as their purpose, but the work is not purposeful in and of itself. I guess "pay enough to take money off the table" covers that, so we're only talking about how to motivate people after they're at the comfortable level most Americans that read this blog are at. Interesting results in India, though. I believe there is a threshold that once you're paid a certain amount, you feel on top of things like you deserve it, so you don't work hard to move up further. I think that's one reason government employees aren't known for super service. @Blueluck: Its completely subjective, is the answer.
